Marmilman: Wow. The comments in that article are weapons grade retarded.
Life_is_a_carnivore: Or they could have laid low and cashed them in one at a time but they had to be attention whores.Duh.
Cybernetic: The longer I live, the more I learn the value of keeping my mouth shut.
HMS_Blinkin: Marmilman: Wow. The comments in that article are weapons grade retarded.It's pj media, what did you expect?
Flint Ironstag: That's probably the route I'd have gone down as well. Or at least have kept half the hoard secret when I went public with the other half.
HindiDiscoMonster: Find treasure.Step 1: move said treasure out of USA to a country known for protecting it's banking customers (you can afford it now)Step 2: move your family and assets out of the USA to a country where you can live like emperors till the day you die (that are unlikely to cooperate with US authoritiesStep 3: obtain citizenship in new country, and renounce US citizenshipStep 4: with the loudest voice you can muster (no posting on the net) say:Step 5: Enjoy your new life and fortune.
Harlow_B_Ashur: Write the Feds a check for $28,000 and be done with it.
Satanic_Hamster: Don't click on derp cites.
TerminalEchoes: Satanic_Hamster: Don't click on derp cites.Like Salon, MSNBC, Think Progress, NPR, and Mother Jones? I don't.
Do they get $2.5 million finder fee and then get taxed on that? That is what I would expect of the IRS.
Two things you keep your mouth shut about: finding money and sex with your teacher.

Rhino_man: Harlow_B_Ashur: Write the Feds a check for $28,000 and be done with it.And if they're smart, they'll hire a lawyer that will be able to argue exactly that. $30,000 in currency was stolen. $30,000 in currency was returned.Hell, they could even return it adjusted for inflation and only have to cut a check for about $900k
GDubDub: Wow, there is some real Grade A derp in the comments of TFA.
baka-san: So far this looks like a little internet laywering to me.But here's the rules on stolen items, there is a statute of limitations on the charges, but if the original owner is known then they or their descendents are still the legal owners.For example, if they could prove that this money was stolen from (for arguments sake) a timber/shipping/mining/whatever baron, their family would still be the rightful owners.And as said, they still get 2.5 mil.In this case, the original owner seems to be the US goverment.
Maledeus: Should have melted it all down and made non-descript bars...
